Like all construction work, stove installation involves certain assembly techniques that if not done correctly could seriously damage your property and end up costing you a lot of money and unnecessary stress.

What You Need To Consider

If you already have a fireplace and chimney then you may want to have the stove installed in place of the old fire. Alternatively if you want the stove in a different location you must consider that the flue needs to be fed out into the open air, typically stove flues are fed through the wall as opposed to through the ceiling. Take your time to consider this and which wall would be most suitable, this could affect where your stove can be positioned inside the home. If your stove is not going to be placed on a traditional mantel then you may wish to purchase some non-flammable materials for it to be placed upon, such as ceramic tiles or a slate of marble or concrete.
